Need to know using experience of handheld shower heads!


I've been reading this complete guide of shower heads to gain knowledge about which hand held shower head will be good to use.

My bathroom space is in medium range, so I want to know what type of shower head will be good fit on a mid size shower room.

Looking for you guys help.

I kind of like the Waterpik - mainly because I know they will honor the warranty and send me a new one with little hassle. It will fail (leak) but as long as the send me a new one every 5 years - I'm OK.

The important part for me was that the hose should be fairly flexible out of the box. I took a chance, but Danze d465005 from amazon turned out to be a good shower head/rod combo. Rip out the water restricting washer - it is metal pressure tab.

I tend to like the smaller ones so that I don't have to stand like a bow-legged cowboy while I spray where the sun don't shine.

Because of the height of my spout I also add a 3 meter truly flexible hose to the cheap hand shower I buy and throw away the one that came with it.

Actually I'm reading the reviews of Danze d465005 currently in the Amazon. Seems like a good product!

I'm trying to wrap my head around that. What happens to the used shower heads? Is the presumption the store dries them out and hangs them back on the rack?

I think I may have ordered mine wrong. I ordered the only ones Moen had in the colour of my choice. Sure hope they're OK.

I guess I'll get used to them eventually, no matter what.
